What is included with this book?
Lassie is Joe's prize collie and constant companion. But when Joe's father loses his job, Lassie must be sold. Three times she escapes from her new owner, and three times she returns home to Joe, until finally she is taken to the remotest part of Scotland—too far a journey for any dog to make alone.
But Lassie is not just any dog.
First published in 1940, Lassie Come-Home by Eric Knight, illustrated by Marguerite Kirmse, has become one of the best-loved dog stories in the world.

Eric Knight (1897-1943) was born in Yorkshire, England. After moving to the United States, he eventually settled on a farm in Pennsylvania, where he wrote Lassie Come-Home.
